I was encouraged, prodded, and coerced by my good friend Lanell to participate in the Memphis Women 5K Run/Walk and sooooo.....I did it.
First of all, three miles is a long way. But, being there with all these other women doing the exact same thing was pretty cool.
I did however want to share a few of thoughts....
Number one...I learned that the number you wear on your shirt is called a bib.
I did not know that until today.
Number two...Today is the first day I have ever used a Porto Potty...enough said.
And finally, number three...every thing we were ever taught about littering gets thrown out the window at a race. At the mile markers, they hand you a cup of water as you go by and then you THROW THE CUPS ON THE CURB when you're done.
(they have someone designated to clean them up)
It was a great experience and I had fun. On top of that, everyone got a cool t-shirt and medal!
